A fight on Sunday between two NHL enforcers suddenly ended in a gentlemen’s agreement between the two to stop brawling. (Watch the video below.)
Deslauriers then tapped Olivier respectfully on the helmet, and Olivier returned the gesture. The two briefly embraced face to face and skated off the ice.
The announcer seemed delighted at the mutually decided stoppage.

That the two would be trading blows is no surprise. Before the season, The Hockey News ranked Deslauriers as the No. 2 enforcer in the league and Olivier made honorable mention.
The Flyers won by the same score on Sunday at home.
